Genetic Genealogy Conference in November 2006Just received this about Family Tree DNA's annual genetic genealogy conference on November 3-4, 2006:
While many of you have already noticed the announcement of our 3rd International Conference on Genetic Genealogy on our home page - and many have already registered - we are taking this opportunity to bring to your attention some exciting features that we are offering this year:
a) we will have several breakout sessions on various topics, including the best use of your Group Administrator tools.
b) we will have a well-known ethicist, Josephine Johnston - who has published on the subject of Genetic Genealogy - addressing one of our full sessions as well as a breakout session.
We are looking forward to the 3rd Conference as it will mark several milestones already announced, and still to be announced. The conference will be hosted at the Sheraton Intercontinental Hotel in Houston, on November 3 and 4.
Here are the links to the press-release and schedule. The link to registration is at the bottom of the schedule:

The only catch is that you have to be the administrator of an active surname project at Family Tree DNA in order to register. That's how they keep attendance to a manageable level. I've been to the first two conferences, and it's great chance to mingle with other avid genetealogists and find out the latest and greatest.
